Beautiful!

The lip really looks good on your car! However I'm a bit sad hearing the extra work needed to get the skirt on the car

Looking at your pics though, I think the work is well worth doing ^.^

Yeah,as you can probably tell from the pics i bailed on the DIY, got the dealer to install it when picking up the car, it was worth the ~$50 it cost.

I was thinking that way, but then i saw JPH's tinted tails and they looked great, even better than red. I have some tint overlays ordered, should be here very soon.
When i showed the pics to my wife, first she complained the 08 didnt look like my old 05 (no huge wing, no huge hoodscoop). then she said she loved the rear lights. Women! So i might have to keep them stock

Laminex gunsmoke pre-cut tail overlays - installed by Juan @ Tints R Us. Well worth the $30 to get his 17 years of experience on the install. he's available at 408 971 7009
The gunsmoke tint is really awesome, not dark at all, but it tones down the gaudy stock lights. Finally i'm happy with the exterior look.

Very subtle difference, maybe a little darker would be better. But if you like it that's all that counts, I'm going with red overlays. Nice work.

I like it personally, not too dark but muffles the flashy chrome.

i guess it does makes a difference on how light or chrome looking your tails are.
the gunsmoke was too dark on my mx-5
